Forums on small business, entrepreneurial and minority business opportunities will be held in Augusta next week.

The forum, from 9 a.m. to noon Tuesday at Paine College, will focus on minority business opportunities, including workshops on access to capital, contracting with the federal government and starting a business.

Cassius Butts, the Small Business Administration regional administrator, will be on hand to participate, as will representatives from the Small Business Development Center and Service Corps of Retired Executives volunteers.

Next Wednesday’s sessions, from 9 a.m. to noon at the Kroc Center, will be on small business lending, federal contracting, starting a business, veterans business opportunities and initiatives to help Georgia startups.

Both events, sponsored by U.S. Rep. John Barrow, are free and open to the public.
